Ahhh well in theory that would be better wouldnt it as if you fit a dump valve wrong wouldnt it send up error codes on dash or what ever where as this is the 1 way and doesnt affect it.

Is this the norm on these engines ? surely a recirc valve would be better, as you say, if the turbo spools up slower now you are losing performance ? adding an induction kit wouldn't make up for what you have lost

Re: Bonalume power pop valve

Cheers. I have a question.
On the bonalume site, there are two types of bov for the tjet. The one you have installed, and a much more expensive one. This one



I asked them what is the difference between the bov's. They said that both bov's change the performance, but they didnt say how ( better or worse ).
I have a Bravo tjet, and on their page, the only one that is offered for my car is the expensive one.
I see that your's doesn't have the return of air on the intake again or I am wrong?
It let's out all of the exta air that builds up after releasing the trottle.

Makes no difference on such a small turbo.

Re: Bonalume power pop valve

If the second one has a feedback back to the intake, maybe it's a better solution?
The price is very expensive for the second one (260 €+)
